Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has reignited his long standing feud with Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola, with the Man United boss taking a dig back at City following the release of their behind-the-scenes documentary ‘All or Nothing’.
Fans from across the world have hailed the documentary, which offers a rare insight into how one of the world’s biggest football club’s operates behind-the-scenes.
The second episode of the much acclaimed series contained several jibes towards Mourinho, with the show’s narrator opening with: “It is Guardiola versus Mourinho once more; possession versus defence; attacking football versus ‘park-the-bus”.
This episode focused largely on City’s win against United at Old Trafford last December.
When Mourinho was questioned about the documentary he told Sky Sports:
“You can have a fantastic movie while respecting others.”
“You don’t need to be disrespectful to have a fantastic movie. You can be a rich club and buy the best players in the world but you cannot buy class and they showed that clearly, that was really obvious.”
Mourinho’s words will no doubt fire up United fans as the Red Devils prepare to go head-to-head in a challenge for the title with Manchester City this season.
Although Mourinho himself coined the term ‘park the bus’, and despite his side often playing somewhat defensive heavy football on occasion, City’s dig was a little uncalled for.
We’re sure Jose will be wanting to prove the reigning champions wrong when his United side face up against Guardiola’s team this season.
Mourinho and Guardiola’s feud started all the way back in 2010 when the two were managers of Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively.
And we’re sure this dig from City will add more fuel the fire between Mourinho and Guardiola, something that really wasn’t needed when you consider how competitive the two were during their times in charge of the Spanish duo.
